Next Door

 Hmmm, what is this?


Some of you may have recognized it by now, although it is awfully scraggly at this point. It is a tiny pumpkin patch!


This is our next door neighbors' little patch in the side yard. They picked the few little ones that survived and put them out.


And when I say this is a tiny patch, here I am looking at it through our back door. I have circled the entire patch. Teeny. Taking three big steps would cover the entire patch.


I am impressed!

That would be the perfect sized pumpkin patch for me. Just enough pumpkins to use for a little decorating. How fun.

Best size pumpkin patch for me- I would gather the smallest and decorate and then till that patch under :)

A couple small pumpkins are better than none. :)

Nice photos. I have a few volunteer pumpkins this year from where I had one on display outside last year. They are white.
The leafs are starting to turn colors here now , just a bit so far

I'm thinking that those are just the perfect size too.
Tiny is good for that patch..it shows that pumpkins will do their thing just about any place.
I do love your ending quote about coffee and pumpkins..made me smile.

So exciting to see the pumpkins growing, even out of a small patch! I have several in my garden this year, they are going to be ripening soon. I'm excited! Blessings to you :) Enjoy!

That is about the perfect size for me. I don't have a lot of room for pumpkins

How wonderful that your neighbors have a pumpkin patch.....even it's it's a small one. It produced some cute little pumpkins. I like the stem on that one. That's a charming picture of the wee pumpkins with the flowers next to the fence. You have some interesting things in your neighborhood, Ginny.

A perfect size and pumpkins are their reward. I always enjoy your neighborhood photos.

First of all, I agree that there is no logical reason to put pumpkin in a cup of coffee. UGH! No thanks. Then I must point out that TG had an almost identical pumpkin patch in our side yard! It produced one smallish decorative pumpkin of dubious color. NOT orange, haaahaha! xoxo
